Ruxpin

Born in 1981, Jonas Thor Gudmundsson, better known as Ruxpin first started producing music at the age of 14. His first release the Mission EP was released on Uni:Form Recordings (Iceland) in 1999. Through his debut album he got in touch with the highly acclaimed label Elektrolux (Germany) where he released his next two LPs (Midnight Drive & Avalon), alongside with one LP on their sublabel Mikrolux.
Ruxpin - Elysium

Artist: Ruxpin
P: 2006
Mikrolux MKX14CD

According to Greek mythology, Elysium is a paradisiac „island of the blissful“ in the utmost West of the orbit for those heroes who were made immortal by the Gods. Tasting the water from the fount of Lethe on lanes full of roses, all earthly troubles are fading away. On his fifth studio album, the Icelandic producer Jonas Thor Gudmundsson takes us right there.

Besides his Mikrolux album "Magrathea" (2003), he caused a furore by his Elektrolux long players "Midnight Drive" (2000) and "Avalon" (2003). The student of history and learned pianist got his first „electronic consecrations“ from Magnus Gudmundsson and Birgir Thorarinsson also known as members of the Icelandic pop collective Gus Gus. Since the end of the nineties, he has been producing under his pseudonyms Den Nard Husher and Ruxpin - initially for the Icelandic cult labels Thule and Uni:form. Under his musical influences, Gudmundsson e.g. counts The Orb, Tears for Fears, Plaid, Art of Noise or Kraftwerk.
This extensive musical horizon is reflected by "Elysium" as well. Ruxpin stands for a sensually matured mixture of fantastic melodies and spheres under the sign of elektro and an original und deeply bewitching blend of mechanics and romance. "Even if several purists may have a different view on this, I consider my music to be elektro which is, however, stylistically more open than a mere combination of 808 plus vocoder. However, I have to admit that, on a subconscious level, the nature of my home country with all its mountains, glaciers and volcanos brings about a considerably more organic sight on music on. In my opinion, the enviroment is not less important for a musician than for e.g. a painter.” Thus, Ruxpins intensively emotional hymns like "Creating Artificial Love", "Without You", "Hallo Litli Geimgenglill" or "Garden Of The Hesperides" indeed make everyday life become secondary for about 70 minutes.

Ruxpin - This Time We Go Together
Artist: Ruxpin
P: 2013

It’s been about three years since we last heard from Jonas Thor Gudmundsson, an Icelandic electronic musician recording under his Ruxpin alias. If his real name sounds familiar, it’s because together with Plastik Joy‘s Fannar Ásgrímsson they make up another n5MD project, namely Asonat. After five releases bouncing between Elektrolux and its sub-label Mikrolux, Gudmundsson got signed on to n5MD, and kicked off a new series of albums: I Wonder If This Is The Place (2010), Where Do We Float From Here? (2010) and now This Time We Go Together. As with all experiences gained over time, the production became tighter, the concept fuller, and overall more intelligent in design. And when it comes to the IDM acronym, although the ‘D’ is no longer present, the ‘I’ is still an important ingredient in ‘M’. There are many fantastic and fascinating forms on this collection of sixteen pieces. From pensive piano keys over field recordings, to electro infused dropping beats over a buzzing of synths, to glitchy goodness measuring out the fast-paced rhythm over the slow-stretching chords, each explored idea paints a picture of a fantasy world which could be almost reached by our outstretched hands minds. This journey is musically described through a cohesive theme, poetically through the track titles, and subliminally through a hint of abstract vocals on a few pieces by Asonat introduced Oléna Simon and Chihiro Dunn.
